Madonna Goes ‘Gangnam Style’ With Psy: 10 Celebrities Who’ve Joined the Dance Craze (GALLERY)
Now, Madonna has hopped on the bandwagon — breaking out into the iconic dance inspired Korean pop sensation Psy‘s “Gangnam Style.” During her Tuesday night MDNA tour concert in New York City, the Material Girl teamed up with the South Korean singer for a three-song set.
“I have a little surprise for you,” Madge told the 20,000-strong cheering crowd at Madison Square Garden. “A song that I’ve sung for a while,” she said before the first few highly-recognizable chords of Psy’s chart-topping hit played. As she sung the lyrics to a remixed “Give It To Me,” Psy appeared on stage and yelled into the mic, “Are you ready NYC?”
Wearing a crisp red suit and sunglasses, Psy led Madonna and her bevy of backup dancers in his side-stepping horse dance, which shot to worldwide fame from his viral YouTube video, currently at over 720 million likes. Along with “Gangnam Style” and “Give It To Me,” the duo performed Madonna’s hit “Music.”
This isn’t the first time Psy — whose real name is Jae-Sang Park — has schooled a star in his self-described “dress classy, dance cheesy” moves. In September, Ellen DeGeneres invited Psy to her daytime talker to teach Britney Spears how to do the so-called invisible horse dance.
Brad Paisley channel Psy’s smooth moves as they hosted the 2012 CMA Awards.
